Subscription price to non-members is $1.00 per year in ad-

In accordance with a vote of the Society at its February 
meeting, The Florida Buggist will, with the new volume, be- 
come The Florida Entomologist. 

Yes, and the Business Manager regrets that this change of 
name was made without at least a month's previous notice, 
and without getting the vote of the non-resident members. It 
is the writer's belief that changes of name of a publication 
should not be hastily made, especially when it is considered 
that The Buggist has completed three years of an honorable 
record, being successful far beyond the anticipation of its 
originators. A few people, somewhere in the United States, 
have been critical of the name Buggist, and so the movers for 
a change, Buggists who visited the Entomological meetings at 
St. Louis in December, rushed home and ology it must be with 
"all other ologies whatsoever". Verily, like a rush to cover 
of chickens from a shadow. 

If those who are similarly minded will voice their senti- 
ments by writing at once to the Secretary, there is still time 
for reconsideration. If the name must be changed, the writer 
would suggest The Florida Insectist — a name that is new and 
different, and not stale. — E. W. B.
